Wonderful news today: the MitoMouse project has reached its first stretch goal, and the research will now have even more scope thanks to the efforts of the community. We would like to thank Anthony Jennings, Jose Almeida, Daria Khaltourina, Max Twemlow, Denis Dmitriev, Daniel Smith, and Ingrid Wolf for helping us to hit the first stretch goal in the last 24 hours!
MitoMouse builds on the success of the previous 2015 MitoSENS campaign, which Lifespan.io also hosted on the behalf of SENS Research Foundation and that resulted in the successful demonstration of mitochondrial gene expression in the cell nucleus of not one but two mitochondrial genes! The amazing scientists at SENS Research Foundation were able to achieve this feat only through the support of the community, and today, thanks to you, we have done it again!
The SENS Research Foundation team took the time to answer a few more questions about the MitoMouse project and why developing mitochondrial repair therapies is important for age-related diseases and other conditions.
